Area Portals Error

    Now, I'm no mapper, so when my mapping friend Oblivion runs into problems, I just come here. His map is almost done, and this is the last thing he needs fixed before he is finished.


    when the map compiles it says portalnum > numareaportals error, but there are no area portals anymore, they have all been deleted from the map

    Now, I've no fucking clue what any of this means, so I'm asking you guys for help. What does this mean for the map, and how can it be fixed?

    Ran into this in my old map (timeline) tell him to give you the whole compile log and post it here.

    And tell him to go to map->load pointfile at the top of the window. If it opens another window asking you which to open then tell me, if it draws a red line in his map it means there's a leak, the red line will bring you to it.

    Looks like oblivion accidentally control+t'd a displacement. He'll have to find the displacement and either move it to the world or delete it all together.

    He says that probably happened when his cat ran across the keyboard. Any way to make this procedure go fast as there s over 1400?

    There's not over 1400, thats the entity ID. Besically, go to view->goto brush number-> paste that 1400 number.

    "I know what the entity number is. It has like 3536 brushes."

    [IMG] Well then select all of those brushes together, then go to tools->move to world, problem should be solved.

    umm

    there is a easier way

    go to visgroup,
    unckeck func_detail and look which displacment brush disappears.


    thats it

    select it and move to world



    second way:


    unckeck ALL


    only check func_detail
    look which dispacement brush you can see

    Oh i thought he was saying he had made 3000 brushes func_details. Yeah, do what MoonLight said, should be better than doing it my way.
